4 Up, 4 Down: The Dallas Mavericks

4 Up, 4 Down: The Dallas Mavericks

There was a lot to love and a lot to hate in last night’s tough OT loss to Dallas. The Celtics scored a lot, but gave up a lot of points… they came back from a huge hole, but they got into that hole in the first place. And then, of course, there was a [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 14: Set rotations, trade targets, & a rant about uniforms

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 14: Set rotations, trade targets, & a rant about uniforms

We’re back this week to talk about the Celtics continued ups and downs… especially those of Kelly Olynyk who can either be really, really good, or really, really bad. Still, it seems like he’s part of a much more solid rotation, and we discuss how health is allowing Brad Stevens to finally get the guys [...]

Recap: Olynyk, Smart lead Celtics rout of Suns

Recap: Olynyk, Smart lead Celtics rout of Suns

Kelly Olynyk looked so comfortable and got so hot, he must’ve thought he was back at Gonzaga, or playing with the Canadian National Team. The lanky long-hair (no man bun tonight) single-handedly broke open a competitive contest by racking up 15 second-quarter points, including 13 straight Celtics points in a stretch of 2:14. Boston topped [...]

I called Kelly Olynyk “borderline untouchable”… and here’s why

I called Kelly Olynyk “borderline untouchable”… and here’s why

Aside from a stretch of play that caused me to launch into a frustrated podcast rant, Kelly Olynyk has had a pretty good month of December. We were treated to more great play last night, despite him being limited by foul trouble. Last night, while lauding his play on Twitter, I took it a step further [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Kelly and Jae play Santa Claus

Your Morning Dump… Where Kelly and Jae play Santa Claus

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Jae Crowder posted his third consecutive double-double in the victory, scoring 19 points while pulling down 12 rebounds, while Kelly Olynyk led Boston with 20 points. [...]

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Ferocious isn’t an adjective often associated with Kelly Olynk. But the quiet Canadian played that way tonight, scoring a team high 20 points (7-10 FG, 9 reb) including two buckets late that sealed the Celtics 102-89 victory over Charlotte. The highlight of the night came in the 3rd quarter when Olynyk channeled his inner Kevin [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 11: Frustration, help coming, and Lee’s a net negative

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 11: Frustration, help coming, and Lee’s a net negative

Scrap everything we said last week, because this past week saw the Celtics get progressively worse over their three games… all losses. Kelly Olynyk is frustrating… and we wonder what it will take to get him in the right place mentally (so does Brad Stevens, by the way). So is Avery Bradley (which might be [...]

Enemy Chatter: Kelly’s Olynyk’s ‘Dirk’ move is cold blooded

Enemy Chatter: Kelly’s Olynyk’s ‘Dirk’ move is cold blooded

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Dallas. After the game, Nowitzki was asked about Olynyk stealing his move. “That was cold-blooded,” said Nowitzki, who suggested he heard an assistant coach shout that a one-footed ISO might be [...]

Recap: C’s start hot, finish cold

Recap: C’s start hot, finish cold

The Celtics started off tonight’s game like a house on fire—and then burned to the ground, losing to Dallas 106-102. They scored the first 7 points of the game and at one point had Dallas more than doubled up 31-14, as Avery Bradley singlehandedly went on a 12 point run that put the Garden crowd [...]

Rainin’ J’s Episode 6: Amir’s importance… and already looking to the draft

It was a pretty successful week for the Boston Celtics. John and Jay talk about the defense (4th in the NBA!) that drove two high-quality wins, including how Amir Johnson could be a game-changer for the Celtics. We get a little reality check on RJ “Smooth Criminal” Hunter, discuss what Avery Bradley is and what [...]
